It was raining unluckily in the morning on that day. I came down at Harajuku Station and went to nearby Yoyogi Park. The large site where trees grow thick is located in one corner of a park. The fallen leaves piled up on the ground with rain were damp gently. Wooden benches are in some places at a site. The leaf of the ginkgo tree fell also on the bench, and it was directing the atmosphere appropriate for late autumn. I was taking a walk the site for a while, taking a photograph for the inside of rain. A figure was hardly seen, either. This photograph was taken towards the direction of a park's entrance on the boundary in which red fallen leaves and yellow fallen leaves appear. It was impressive for the extending-straight.

a very pleasant autumn scene with gorgeous colors, well spotted and nicely executed with a good framing by giving the leaves on the floor so much space in the frame.
have a good day

It'll soon be winter but the photo still shows a beautiful autumn atmosphere. Despite the rainy day, the image is absolutely luminous thanks to the bright yellow carpet of leaves and the light breaking trough the trees. I like your tasteful cropping of the trees here and the contrast between the dark trunks in the FG and the brighter ones in the BG. A fine capture.

the wonderfully balanced composition, the steady rhythm of the repeating patterns of tree trunks and branches, the beautiful rich colours, have created an exquisite sense of peace and harmony. I also love the depth of the view, the light and the marvellous gradation of the autumn colours. We can feel the humidity and the whisper of the rain. The atmosphere is captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

This is a lovely photo. It's quite simple but has a great beauty. I get a strong feeling of calmness seeing the yellow leaves covering the clean ground, the dark trunks of the trees and the soft light among the branches further back. This is a photo which brings me peacce of mind.

Magic autumn shot my friend! Great management of light, I can never get a good pic when I shoot a forest. A big gift for our eyes!

the colour tones in your picture are amazing. the golden yellows and oranges are wonderful and bring the whole scene together in a beautiful way. the repeating pattern of the tree trunks add further interest to a lovely tranquil scene.
have a lovely evening,

Hi dear Mikio. Serene image in its stillness and haunting light in the distance.Graphic contrast between the tree trunks and the golden carpet of leaves. The absence of people makes the image more mysterious. Best wishes. Klaudio.

A wonderful autumn shot and this is one beautiful morning you enjoyed. The balmy light is exquisite with msty distance and are just perfect and outstanding while the strong dark colored tree trunks add as strong focal point. The feel of depth and perspective is there with the bench helps to find the best angle and scale to this shot. Bet this brought a smile to your face and what a very picturesque image to the serene surroundings. Top rated scene and love it. My compliments :))

Hello Mikio. The forest has a peculiar fascination for the people, because you can feel yourself safe, the air is pure, you can walk and relax. The photo is well composed and the colors are beautiful. In addition, good handling of light. Overall very nice.

A very simple but yet very effective picture. This is composed like a painting, with heavy brushstrokes along the tree-trunks and an easy application of yellow colours on the ground. A beautyiful picture with a very pleasant and balanced pattern.

Very beautiful autumn color photo you have captured here. I love the melodramatic mood of the autumn atmosphere and the glow the golden lgith between the trees in multi-layers which gives good depth of space. Excellent photo full of moody atmosphere.

Fabulous late autumn scenery, carpet of fallen leaves and great view through the many trees.
Lovely sighty, stunning colors and well managed the light.
mcmtanyel (10407) 2013-08-17 9:26
Oh, yes! Autumn is around the corner again. The good news is that we will have such pretty colors again. The bad news is we'll have less time to "play" outdoors.
This photo has a mystical effect. Excellent piece of art!
